Fruity Pebbles Funfetti Cake

Fruity Pebbles Funfetti Cake

I never intended for my mini s’mores pies to be my last blog post for almost a year.  But suddenly, I felt burnt out.  Not necessarily from baking in general (although grad school started consuming more of my life and made me want to veg in front of the TV instead doing anything else), but rather from…

Classic German Chocolate Cake

Classic German Chocolate Cake

While not as impressive (or quite as much work) as the awesome Momofuku birthday cake, I wanted to have a cake in the fridge to pull out when Dustin’s parents arrived as a belated birthday present. My mom sent me some bake even strips awhile back that I had completely forgotten about, and now I finally had…

Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake

Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake

Mayonnaise may sound like a strange ingredient to add into a cake, but if you really think about it, it’s not. Mayonnaise is simple egg yolks and oil (with maybe a little bit of vinegar or lemon juice thrown in there), ingredients we already use to keep cake moist. Apparently this is a trick that…

Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Part of the reason I miss Seattle so much is missing out on weekly dinner parties with our neighbors. Well I guess I can’t call them dinner parties as much as getting together for food, puppy playdates, and whatever HBO show was in season each year… They were more casual than “party-like” typically.  Not only…

King Cake Monkey Bread

King Cake Monkey Bread

I’m all for celebrating Mardi Gras and Fat Tuesday because Mardi Gras means one thing to me…King Cake! King Cake with cream cheese filling was a big hit a few years ago, but I wanted to simplify the whole process, turning it into a pull-apart style monkey bread. So before Dustin left for San Antonio over…

White Chocolate Lava Cakes

White Chocolate Lava Cakes

We had great success making molten chocolate lava cakes last year around Valentine’s Day. This year we decided to change it up ever so slightly by making white chocolate lava cakes with a hint of lime for a little extra kick. Top with ice cream and fudge sauce for a decadent treat. Things have been…

Mint Chocolate Chip Cake

Mint Chocolate Chip Cake

Sorry for the late post today! I’m sure you are dying with anticipation to see my creation for Dustin’s birthday. Well, here it is in all it’s glory— a mint chocolate chip cake! I know Dustin loves mint chocolate chip ice cream, so I decided to turn the flavors into a birthday cake— a three…

Triple Cookie Stack Cake

Triple Cookie Stack Cake

I’ve professed my love for regular cookie cakes, but how much more exciting would a cookie stack be? Instead of making one large cookie, you make dozens of normal sized cookies and “glue” them together with icing. This was the big dessert I had planned out for our going away salmon bake party. I completely…

Carrot Cake with Maple Cream Cheese Frosting

Carrot Cake with Maple Cream Cheese Frosting

It’s officially Spring, and Easter will be here in only a few days, and Easter means bunnies, which means carrots! Spring is the perfect time to make carrot cake, so I set out to make my own perfect version. I was mostly successful. Taste-wise the carrot cake rocked, but unfortunately I didn’t bake it quite…

Molten Chocolate Lava Cake

Molten Chocolate Lava Cake

You know that moment when you bite into a restaurant’s top dessert, and your eyes roll back in your head. Your taste buds enlighten, and it all comes together in perfect harmony. I have to give props to Erin. Her latest dessert has completly elicited this reaction from me. When I sliced into her chocolate…
